It is a Kromekote Christmas!

Hello! Gloria with you again. WorldWin Papers has come out with a new line of cardstock, called Kromekote. This cardstock collection contains foil, glossy, and glossy textured cardstock papers. The cardstock is a heavy weight, perfect for embossing!

I used the Kromekote Silver Foil cardstock for my card. It is never too early to get started on your Christmas cards, and silver foil is perfect for the holidays! I embossed the Silver Foil cardstock with an embossing folder, and then I gently rubbed the surface with a sanding block.

I used Copic markers to highlight just a few elements of the embossed image. I die cut a small scrap of the silver cardstock with a mini tag die template, and then I stamped the sentiment on it with Staz-On ink (which dries quickly on the glossy surface).

You can see here the "scratching" of the surface that happened when I gently buffed the raised images with a sanding block! It gives the card even more dimension.

I created the card and mat with ColorMates cardstock (deep emerald isle and deep berry red).

Thanks for looking!
